After a very busy few days I am able to take a well earned break. But you can’t just stop being a photographer can you!
After the challenges of lockdown it finally feels as though things are starting to slowly return to normal. With back to back 1-2-1s it feels good to be back out in the field sharing my passion for both photography and the Lake District.
Things are really starting to pick up for my business after a tough time during lockdown. In recent weeks I have had quite a few bookings for 1-2-1s and it feels good. Not even the typically inclement Cumbrian summer can put a dampener on things!
I don’t normally shoot throughout the summer. But this year, because of lockdown, I have decided to carry on right through till autumn. And I am having a fantastic time. Mostly.
Following the government’s announcement that hotels, B&Bs and campsites can reopen from the 4th of July this week I have been very busy planning my workshops for the autumn. I also gave my first ever camera club talk. Perhaps things are starting to look up.
The summer is a difficult time for landscape photographers. The early starts and late finishes. The clear skies, harsh light and lack of colour contrast. Normally I would take a break around this time of year. But having lost so much time to the coronavirus pandemic I an determined to make the most of it this year.
This week has seen some of the most remarkable conditions that I have ever known in the Lake District. It seems I could not have timed my return to the national park more perfectly.
I have been very happy with the work that I have been creating recently as I explore the far eastern fells close to my home. But I am becoming more and more frustrated with the narrow mindedness of some within our community.
